How can I tell the difference between a 7320 CE and a 4630 CDM ?

Hello, I have just taken delivery of what is supposed to be a 7320 Content Engine, however, there is a slight problem, th grill at the front states that it is

a CDM4630!!!! A look at the rear shows the same slots/config as a 7320 and

is labeled as a ce7320. A show version states that it is a ce7320-4.2.1.

It looks like the wrong front panel has been applied but is there a sure fire

way of confirming this?

Thanks in advance,

From your comments, I guess that the device is a CE-7320 with a front panel mismatch. You could use the data sheets that you get with the product to verify the slots and since the show version indicates that it a CE-7320, I believe it should be one. The product overview is available at:

I would suspect if it has the wrong face plate, it would say CDM 4650 or even CDM 4670 on the front. The CDM 4630 is actually a 1U device. :)

To get this corrected, it may be best if you contact Cisco TAC and see if you can coordinate just exchanging the face plate on this device. It would be easier than exchanging the entire device. You took the correct steps in verifying the device from the "show ver".
